Restrict File Downloads

Threaded View

I want to make an xmltv xml file available to download.

But I want to restrict it to no more than 10 users per day.

Is this possible, People won't be downloading it as such, but specifing
the path to it in their Tv application.

Is it possible to restrict the number of times it's accessed ?


Re: Restrict File Downloads

Interesting question.  I don't think that you can because once the link
to the file is exposed, the user can always just call it directly in
their browser.

just use any scripting ( ASP, PHP ) to  hide direct URL and use a download

I have a free link expiry script running on
where you can add your download URL and restrict the number of download
and/or by date that you are welcome to use for free.

Do you copy the download file to a random location, then delete it?
